Mrs. Minnesota

 Morningside is an old streetcar suburb adjoining the Linden Hills neighborhood of the U.S. city of Minneapolis. Morningside was once a separate village, but is now a geographically and architecturally distinct neighborhood in the city of Edina.

Morningside is situated along the old Como-Harriet Streetcar Line and developed more quickly than the mostly rural village of Edina. In 1920, Morningsiders voted to secede from Edina and form their own village to provide amenities more suitable to a professional streetcar suburb.

Morningside’s residential landscape reflects several of the important broad themes in the pattern of suburban development in the Twin Cities area: the relatively high-density of people per square mile within the platted subdivisions, the architectural similarly of the houses and the dependence upon mass-transit. Between about 1905 and 1936, Morningside developers built several hundred new single–family homes, including many bungalows, on standard-sized suburban lots along straight-line streets, replacing land previously occupied by farm fields and orchards.

The Morningside neighborhood was platted for residential development in 1905 by the children of Jonathan Grimes, who inherited the Grimes farm and orchard in the Northeast corner of the village. Grimes Avenue bisects the neighborhood in a North-South orientation. The Jonathan Taylor Grimes House on West 44th Street was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1976.
